The best choice: The rubber series for top players and players enjoying uncompromising power rubbers.
Commitment to continuous improvement, excellent performance and outstanding quality have always be core values of the GEWO tradition.
Most players have already adjusted to the new ABS balls successfully and made the necessary changes in their techniques. At the beginning of this adjustment, players preferred rubbers with rather soft top sheets (for more ball rotation and speed), but now top-level players more and more use hard to very hard rubbers which perform at their best in close-to-the-table power play. In order to offer the perfect solution on this level, too, GEWO designers and world-class players as well as ambitioned players of all levels teamed up in countless test series to find the perfect rubbers meeting the specific requirements of the individual players. The goal was to find the ideal combination of maximum speed, spin and feeling without losing the indispensable level of control required in table tennis. With the new Nexxus Hard rubbers, GEWO mastered this high-wire act perfectly. With the Nexxus Hard series, we proudly present a range of new and very interesting rubber alternatives to all players looking for extra performance.
Faster and harder - GEWO Nexxus EL Pro 53 Hard!
The youngest and hardest member of the Nexxus family is also the fastest rubber in the globally successful Nexxus series. To activate the full power of this rubber, players need reliable technique plus quick and dynamic arm movement. Players mastering this rubber will benefit from maximum speed and even more spin potential. With the new ABS balls, these are just the parameters which are indispensable for modern attackers.
Enjoy the linear catapult effect of the hard EL sponge and maximum spin thanks to the combination with DGC40+ surface technology.
Player type / features:
. An absolute power pack for uncompromising, close-to-the-table attacking.
. Ideal for players using short and fast arm movements who need maximum speed for their play.
. For hardworking players with good technique. Maximum power for perfect acceleration of the ball.
nexxTT / N.E.P (Nano.Elastic.Plus) / Maxximum.Power.Play.
Due to permanent product adjustments, e.g. the introduction of the new ABS balls, rubbers had to be adjusted accordingly to these trends. The latest ball generation produces less rotation and speed. To compensate for this loss in rotation and speed, you have two options: Adjust your technique or your material. GEWO aims at supporting the necessary physical adjustments with innovative solution approaches: A thin, high-grip top sheet (nexxTT) compensating the loss in speed and rotation with its inherent dynamics and higher tension (N.E.P.). Plus, a medium-pore, dynamic sponge which, depending on the performance variant chosen (XT -> speed; EL -> spin), makes the Nexxus Pro Series a real "Energy Monster", especially the maXXimum thickness ( 2,2mm/2,3 mm = Maxximum.Power.Play.).
One of the factors of success of the GEWO HYPE EL / XT / KR rubbers was the innovative DGC40+ top sheet technology. DGC40+ stands for constant, reliable coupling upon ball contact, and the grippy surface prevents "slipping" of the ball. The introduction of the latest ball generation (e.g. GEWO Select Pro 40+ ***), however, also calls for a further development and adaptation of the top sheets. The result: DGC40+ "Dynamic-Grip-Concept" 2.0. The top sheet was specially developed for and adjusted to the requirements of the latest ball generations. If you don't go forward, you go backwards!
The flexible sponge/rubber design FLEX-TECH (XT) which was specially developed for GEWO, produces impressive speed. Rubbers from the XT series, combined with the DGC40+ 2.0 top sheet, transform the speed of your opponent's topspins into energy and release this energy again in your own stroke when the ball leaves your bat. The pimple heads in the rubber are arranged at a greater distance from one another, and they are slightly thinner than in EL rubbers. These rubbers primarily focus on speed.
The EL rubber (Elastic Rubber), despite its compactness provides for great ball contact feedback and a unique feel. All rubbers of this series are made for spin. The pimple heads in the rubber are arranged at a smaller distance from one another, and they are slightly thicker than in XT rubbers. When it comes to generating spin, the DGC40+ 2.0 top sheet unfolds its true strength (highly reliable coupling and maximum spin), as it provides for a slightly larger contact area upon ball contact. Enjoy a new experience!
